Well, now that the deal is done and Marvel have their grimy kits back on the properties owned by 20th Century Fox, we are wondering what will come next.

And it looks like some exciting stuff lies ahead.

Firstly, one of the big worries fans have is that now that Deadpool will be heading to Marvel, will we see the same x-rated content? Well, Disney CEO Bob Iger says that it’s certainly not off the table: “There may be an opportunity for an R-rated Marvel brand as long as we let audiences know what’s coming.”

This should be encouraging because it at least means they are considering more adult content in the MCU that would live alongside the likes of the Netflix series.

Next up, Iger has confirmed that your favourite heroes are all heading to join the MCU: “We’re also looking forward to expanding the Marvel cinematic universe to include X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool and reuniting all of the Star Wars movies under one roof, which opens new opportunities for that franchise.”

So, there you have it, now the only characters that Marvel don’t have free reign with are the ones living at Sony such as the upcoming Venom, Black Cat and Morbius movies… but we all know i’s probably only a matter of time before we see them all coming home too.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
